Best scooter brands
Razor is one of the most well-known brands when it comes to scooters and its reputation does not allow the company to lose face in the eyes of the customers. Its vision comes from the belief that if computers and cell phones can be reinvented and made more fun, so can scooters.
It’s well known for providing countless hours of thrilling and enjoyable rides on toys for kids and adults of all ages. This wide reach and market orientation are some of the core elements of the company’s success.
Razor aims to innovate on the scooters market by using its new designs, engineering techniques, and reinvented wheels to release a vast variety of scooters. The “Model A” scooter, which first witnessed the new type of wheel, instantly became a global phenomenon for many generations of customers.
Another draw is that the company makes everything from manual scooters to hoverboards, electric skateboards, and even turbo-powered heel wheels.
Its timeline aim for keeping a customer is, more often than not, forever, since the products are designed to grow with them. The fact that children can grow into teenagers and then into young adults while having the possibility to upgrade to the next Razor scooter is a major advantage of the company.
Lucky is one of the original companies that made their way into the pro scooter scene. Continuing this tradition, the company continues to support riders, retailers and even participates in industry events to help advance the sport and discover new talent.
Lucky’s vision, especially in the beginning, was based on making custom scooter parts and it managed to rapidly grow into the position of a high-quality maker of such parts. Having gained a massive fan base, nowadays Lucky supports a number of riders both in the USA and worldwide.
The next generation of Lucky scooters continues to be oriented toward innovation and rider comfort, on top of everything else. Freestyle scooters are at the epicenter of the company’s focus and it proves this by having multiple world champions in its teams.
Lucky was the first company to release an aftermarket CNC-machined scooter deck and one-piece forks, managing little by little to surround the riders with some of the best manufacturers, designers, urban illustrators, and engineers in the world.
It continues to have a sort of overall focus on its products, aiming to create scooters that are amazing to ride, technologically superior to anything else on the market and also look good during this whole process.
District prides itself on being the first company ever that offered custom freestyle scooter parts. Having written the playbook on this subject, District really has a reputation to uphold when it comes to setting the standards for scooter design, performance, and even manufacturing.
The company’s mission is to maintain its globally recognized brand and create the absolute best Freestyle scooter products in the world. Its product lines come from the only self-owned manufacturer that is 100% focused on the development of this line of scooters. The ultimate goal is to forever make an impact on the art that is freestyle riding.
Started in 2007, District was the first brand to introduce strip-proof bolts, further improving the rider experience on the new types of scooters and gaining an advantage over the competition.
The company caters to all types of riders, from the most hardcore ones who shine in competitions down to the kid just hitting the street and wanting to have some fun with his friends, due to its belief that anyone can experience freestyle riding.
District has headquarters in Europe and the United States where it proudly helps a diverse and international rider base built on the brand’s lasting reputation.
Phoenix is a company that is looking to provide affordable scooters that can be used as rides on the streets and in skate parks around the world. While it doesn’t have as big a reputation as some of the more prestigious names from scooter culture, an up-and-comer can look no further than them.
Phoenix builds a variety of different styles of scooters and aims to have a product for everybody that might be interested. With a good eye toward innovation, the company has kept up with the times and now also offers custom scooter parts combined with scooter decks and clamps for the DIY people out there.
The quality of these items is shown by the fact that one of its hottest items is one of the decks, which acts as a symbol for Phoenix’s desire to remain relevant in a time of change. The company prides itself on making no compromises while continuing to push forward in regards to scooter design and engineering.
Another thing that stands out is the fact that, even though Phoenix aims to have a little something for everybody, it really puts emphasis on top-tier scooters which are designed for pro-level riders and makes sure to continuously upgrade these models to bigger and better versions.
Envy is one of the scooter companies that has really carved out its place as a top-notch competitor in the business. Having recently redesigned many of its products, the company always strives toward innovation by tending to upgrade its already-in-place models rather than just building new ones.
Another big thumbs up is for the strong and constant presence it has on social media. From all the pages that are already considered “must-haves” to keeping in contact with magazines from scooter world, Envy really stepped up its game not only in design and engineering but also in remaining in the spotlight.
It is renowned for using high-quality materials which are combined in a plethora of artful colors that will fit even the most eccentric of tastes. As you’re supposed to in today’s market, Envy offers a full range of scooters, from the ones designed for beginners to pro-level products.
Another great thing is that you can find completely custom-made scooters which are suitable even for beginners. The company also took a step forward by offering accessories and apparel products, further extending the brand toward a certain lifestyle without being hindered by only creating scooters.
Grit Pro Scooters is one of the most well-known brands in Australia when it comes to riding scooters and is quickly making a name for itself around the world. Even though its secure and established position is on the Australian continent, the company also has headquarters in Europe and the United States of America.
Grit offers a range of complete scooters for just about everybody, from excited first-timers to seasoned veterans who are always participating in competitions. Keeping up with the trend, it also offers pro scooter parts and pro scooter accessories, which have the advantage of being able to be mixed even with other brands on the market.
The company heavily stresses computer-aided design techniques and is constantly receiving feedback from its riders around the world. Combining this method with only the highest grades of raw materials makes for a tremendous recipe in producing the most advanced complete scooters and customer scooter parts.
Design is also something that is very important since it is one of the main characteristics that differentiate old-school scooters from the modern use of this word. Grit has made it its mission to ensure Grit products are always at the forefront of the business and that its customers never go lacking in something.
This is another Australian brand which is starting to make an impact worldwide due to the quality of its products. With a hefty collection of scooters to choose from, Sacrifice has come to be known as the “go-to” brand for a lot of your neighborhood riders.
This quality also ensures every customer on any budget plan can find something to buy from Sacrifice should they choose to. The scooters also have a wide spectrum of colors, so you will more than likely find something to fit your demands.
It’s always good to know what others say about the quality of a product before buying it. If you are looking for a high-quality, durable stunt scooter then this is the company for you. While not openly going after every type of people in the market, Sacrifice has made it a personal objective to repeatedly upgrade and improve its top-tier scooters.
This is a great strategy that works right into their vision of offering pro stunt scooters for pro riders which can help further expand the brand. It also strongly emphasizes its artwork and this is the reason why most of its products look amazing.
It seems like Australia’s really turning the world upside down with the number of successful scooter companies that have been started there. Apex is another one of those companies and focuses on manufacturing lightweight, high-quality products.
Apex prides itself on having its manufacturing facility right on the Gold Coast and thus all its scooters are one hundred percent Australian made. The components are also manufactured on cutting edge multi-axis CNC machines after which they are tested and proven by the company’s team of veteran, professional riders.
Another nice bonus is that Apex offers you the possibility to fully configure your Pro Scooter Deck directly on its website, with the possibility of choosing colors, splash accents, and etching.
As a team, even though it prides itself with being Australia’s top Pro Scooter company, Apex has a smaller number of riders when compared to other teams of its caliber. This is another type of expanding strategy since these riders are so talented and flamboyant that they are capable of perfectly representing the brand by themselves.
This is proven by the fact that even though Apex’s prices are a bit higher than those of its competitors, the company continues to remain at the top of Australia’s scooter market.
Globber was founded back in 2014 by experts who had dedicated their lives to the riding & scooter industry. Due to the quality of its products, it has quickly established itself as a key player on the market. Globber caters to everybody, offering a wide array of toddler, kid, teenager, and adult scooters.
The company has aimed and succeeded to transform the conventional scooter with its sleek and innovative design and dependable functionality.
Globber always strives to create a global brand, encouraging an overall fun and healthy lifestyle while making scooters a part of a funnier, everyday life. This kind of approach has brought in many customers looking to educate their children about the benefits of an active life.
Innovation is ingrained in the company’s DNA, since it offers, at this time, the only product on the market with a patented steering lock button which is a great help for children first learning to ride. Globber also introduced the first foldable 3-wheel scooter and also actively promotes an assisted 1-second folding mechanism which aims to be the commuting scooter’s best friend.
As a whole, the company’s products are available in over 73 countries worldwide and you can usually find them in high-end specialty sports stores and several handpicked department stores.
Swagtron is a company that prides itself on mobility. Everything it does there is focused on mobility and being innovators and market leaders on electric rides. Swagtron focuses on everything from hoverboards to e-bikes, scooters, and skateboards, truly a company that threatens to engulf all spaces in the non-engine-ride market.
With a customer base this size, one of the challenges that Swagtron faces is managing to excel in all types of products and successfully face off against competition that is only focused on, say, the scooter market.
The company aims to make every experience fun and rewarding for the rider so its designers spend a lot of time tinkering with the products and trying to come up with creative ideas to make them more accessible for everybody.
A great advantage that Swagtron has is its vertically integrated business model that covers all aspects of the business, drastically reducing the need to outsource anything. Swagtron handles design, product development, manufacturing, sales, logistics, as well as marketing and distribution.
By doing this, the customer can be absolutely sure that once he places a Swagtron order that is exactly what he/she will get. In a world filled to the brim with replicas and eastern outsourcing, this is a great competitive advantage to have.
Fuzion sells itself as more than a company, but rather a family of sorts. The elements that separate this quite large family from others is the obsessive attention to the details it puts into the creation of every scooter.
From the contour of the deck to how the profile of the wheels will look like, the rider is at the epicenter of every designer team meeting, ever. Its advantage is the collaboration between industrial designers and elite pro athletes from around the world that results in the high-profile, high-quality products which have made the company extremely popular.
Fuzion’s mission relies on claiming its inability to compromise on the needs of the riders and always doing what’s best to be able to offer them fun, many options, and a brand to live by. The company is also extremely well represented in the online community, with its riders being at the forefront of every page and article.
Another thing which sets Fuzion apart is the fact that even its scooters for entry-level riders look like a professional model, thus creating a more rewarding experience for the customer. It further encourages this by also selling aftermarket parts in order to allow the riders to express their own vision.
Crisp is another one of the companies making a name for themselves on Australia’s competitive extreme scooter riding scene. Even more, with the way the company is growing lately, it is becoming one of the fastest growing scooter brands in the whole world.
One of its trademarks is that it offers a complete range of scooters that can please any customer category on the market and, even more, it has turned this into a lifestyle by also selling pro scooter parts, pro scooter accessories, and even apparel items.
The fact that you can mix and match Crisp items with those of other brands on the market is another reason why riders and potential riders seem to love this brand so much.
When it comes to technology, the company incorporates computer-aided techniques to obtain the remarkable design for its products and is thus able to produce some of the best complete pro scooters and even customer pro scooter parts in the whole world.
Companies which aim to capture a broader share of the market will usually find it hard to get a premium spot but Crisp seems to be doing just fine with this, having many products that are constantly favored by riders in Australia and around the world.
Blunt is the sister brand of Envy and the two of them are doing an amazing job on Australia’s scooter market. The advantage that Blunt had early on is the fact that it realized that complete, affordable and reliable scooters were hard to come by so it started looking for a way to sell just this: A complete scooter experience!
This is how it started to make the “Blunt Completes”, which can come in quite a few color combinations and ready to please everybody. They also come with the company’s signature grips, which are somewhere between “too hard” and “too soft”, so just perfect. The Blunt 3 bolt clamp is a state-of-the-art example of how one of those should be.
By always trying to stay innovative with the way it is building its products and the way it is designing them, the company managed to keep itself a step forward on an otherwise very competitive market.
Blunt has always emphasized striving to use high-quality materials during the process of building each one of its plethora of available scooters, thus managing to make an impact in a community of riders with more and more diversified demands.
Fasen is a brand born out of a desire to lay out new ideas that could change the face of the scooter business and the experience of its riders. Brendon Smith, one of the leaders of the scooter world, managed to get together with one of the biggest manufacturers in the business and kick off Fasen.
This is an experience as much as it is a company because Fasen was built around what Smith wanted and felt scooters could improve on. He also felt a more mature brand would suit him and possibly other riders who shared his feelings.
The company benefited from Brendon’s experience and expertise while the manufacturer brought the latest processes and technologies in the business. With such resources, the end results were bound to be excellent and, thus far, they did not disappoint. Fasen embedded a mix of style and strength that makes you feel good while riding.
The designs are aiming toward a clean, minimalist finish coupled with a futuristic look so that’s a different option from the many flamboyant scooters out there. Due to this approach, the products tend to come out lightweight and performance-driven.
Heralding from Melbourne, Australia, Madd Gear (MGP) was established with a very unique vision in mind: bringing Australia’s outdoor culture to the wide world. Focusing most of its efforts on the “wheeled goods” department, MGP was and is a fundamental player in the pro scooter market that has since exploded into a multi-million dollar industry.
The company aims to bring quality and design, along with affordability, to everyday kids and even those who still feel kids on the inside. Its portfolio ranges from “18 months old to as old as you feel” and yet one characteristic of all of them is the feeling of quality you get when riding an MGP product.
Madd Gear is built on passion and attention to detail, being a worthy ambassador for “The Land Down Under”. This is easy to notice since the company has Sales and Technical offices in Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany, Canada, the United States, and China. Even more, the company ships into more than 80 countries worldwide.
Besides the quality of its products, Madd Gear also made a name for itself by regularly contributing to local charities and events of this nature, striving to help the next generation dream a little bigger.
Slamm Scooters tries to break the monopoly of the Australian brands by being one of the few European scooter companies which really make it to the top of the business. With years of experience behind its experts, Slamm fully internalizes its design and development areas and thus manages to keep a high standard of work.
The company is dedicated to pushing the boundaries in order to create the most competitive scooters around the world. Creating high-quality products at affordable prices is part of its mission as is giving new riders a chance to shred on a high-end spec scooter without spending a fortune first.
Slamm is committed to always adding new technologies and materials to its product ranges as well as using customer feedback to create better options for tomorrow. The fact that it keeps year-round contact with its riders and shops is a very nice advantage and it allows it to regularly make tweaks and upgrades to scooter models.
Another perk is that Slamm customers get full aftermarket support, whether they have wheel problems or even a loose clamp. Since the company offers advice and help, it’s really going all out on creating a relationship with the riders.
VertX is an American company that has really taken off lately in the pro scooter world. The company aims to target trick scooter riders who like to be explosive in the street or even on the vert. Thus, this scooter company is not really the one best suited for beginner riders looking to get a feel for the game.
Because of this, VertX can only afford to offer the highest product quality and the best customer scooters around. It also sells accessories, which are also apparently not too shabby since the VerX scooter fork is widely considered as one of the best and strongest around. They are so good, actually, that many websites have taken to just selling these parts separately.
The company’s goal of providing strong trick scooters seems to fit right in with the evolution of the current scooter world where freestyle riders are quickly making an impact. Therefore, most of the VertX products are built to give the rider maximum freedom and enjoyment while also not having to worry about the possible consequences to gear.
Its scooters come in a variety of colors and designs, further proving the company’s plans toward continuous innovation.
Started in 2011, Royal Scooters caters to riders of all shapes, sizes, and ages, every ability, and every budget. This is a competitive advantage that other brands have also tried to employ because a customer that can never outgrow one of your products will more than likely always come back to you if he/she is satisfied.
The company’s mission is “taking you where you’ve never gone before”, so this in itself says a lot about the type of strategy it follows. Beginners and advanced riders alike will more than likely find something to choose from when they shop from Royal.
Teaming up with world-renowned mountainboard brand MBS, the company was able to create an extremely performant Dirt Scooter, which is something very different from what other companies can offer and was knowingly marketed as such.
An all-terrain scooter which allows its rider to go anywhere and can take a pretty strong beating from the terrain opens up a lot of riding spots for those that feel adventurous and serves to demonstrate Royal’s quality for the rest of them. With this product, it hopes to bring the future to the industry a little bit faster.
Prodigy is another one of the companies that make up the Envy family and really strive to dominate the worldwide scooter market. Prodigy’s vision is innovating ahead of the curve in order to keep up with the demands of the riders and maintain its place on top.
In order to achieve this, the company focuses quite heavily on its social media presence and is always in contact with its customers. Furthermore, not only has it doubled efforts when it comes to designing the scooters but also managed to upgrade its engineering capabilities.
Just like the entire family, Prodigy targets the whole market when it comes to age groups, offering scooters for children, teenagers, and adults. The company’s products also have quite an impact on the pro-scene, being endorsed by a number of well-known riders in the scooter world.
Capitalizing on the reputation it has built, Prodigy offers the possibility of a customer hand-picking all the parts of the scooter and creating a custom one designed specifically for him/her. This attracts large numbers of followers and, combined with the affiliation with Envy, makes sure Prodigy has a well-cemented place as one of the top brands in the business.
Enter Mongoose, one of the more aggressive brands when it comes to enhancing the possibilities of wheeled riding. Established about 40 years ago, the company has literally been emerging as a go-getter in the industry, especially on the American market.
Mongoose has gone above and beyond, in the dirt, off the ramps, and on the trails to push the boundaries of what a rider can do. Compared to other companies, it is also focused on the “urban jungle” environment, not solely on the parks, ramps, and competitions. This allowed it to gain an advantage and attract a large number of followers from the city.
The company has been catering to a wide range of riders ever since it started in a Southern California garage in 1974. It strives to build durable products for “real riders” so beginners, even though they would still manage, might have a harder time with its products. Mongoose builds anything and everything from scooters, BMX, to mountain and pavement bikes.
The company aims to allow its riders to fully express their creativity, regardless of if they are on the smoothest single track or on one of the biggest drops or mountain trails that seem to be never-ending.
Fox Pro Raw
Almost a decade ago, in China, Fox Pro was established with the aim of producing quality pro scooters and pro scooter parts. What it brought to the table was a new and fresh approach of precision and lightweight engineering and the desire to start a trend with this. It fully succeeded, since a lot of scooter companies around the world now follow this model.
The company tends to focus on offering affordable, quality features for its products as well as very good value for money. Another thing that separates Fox Pro is that it isn’t a profit driven brand. In fact, its designers and engineers focus on innovating over and over again based on feedback from its riders worldwide due to an overwhelming desire to improve the sport.
When it comes to customer targeting, Fox Pro builds all types of products, ranging from entry level to senior and pro levels of riding. For instance, one of the more popular models is the Fox Pro Raw Zest stunt scooter, which is suitable for all levels of riders and can withstand heavy punishment in the park.
This product can serve as an example of what Fox Pro is all about with its affordable price, high-quality lightweight aluminum alloy deck and the overall durable feeling.
Vokul does not benefit from having the reach or reputation of some of the large scooter companies but is actively trying to get there. What you get, instead, is a brand which aims to expand its client base by offering quality products at affordable prices.
Vokul sells a full range of scooter products and accessories within a price range that is guaranteed to draw a lot of beginners. Its vision was laid out nearly a decade ago in China when the founder of the company wanted to fulfill a local need of producing kick scooters for the children.
Nowadays, Vokul has grown into a sports products company that makes stunt scooters and strives to sell them to a large consumer base at affordable prices. Therefore, most of its products are designed to be used in the park and are not suitable for an all-terrain type of rider.
The design is also a bonus, Vokul’s creative team clearly following the vision of creating great looking products. The company also focuses on the sturdy, lightweight type of aluminum which undoubtedly helps in lowering the production costs. Overall, Vokul is a great place for beginners to learn the basics of scooter riding and find out what they like.
Dominator Action Sports
Dominator is an example of a company that started small and managed to turn itself into one of the most recognized faces in the pro scooter industry today. In fact, Dominator was one of the foundational brands within the industry when this whole thing started and has grown into a “recognized value for money scooter brand”.
When the first batch of Dominator scooters launched in 2009, the company quickly gained rider praise and acknowledgment due to their quality. However, it became clear early on that there was a gap that needed filling due to customers requiring top-quality complete scooters that were designed and priced for their level, be that beginner or intermediate.
Because of this, after originally starting out as a parts brand, Dominator got into the whole game and now runs a business of selling complete scooters for riders of all levels. Its products vary from lightweight for beginners to more sturdier ones for veterans and the overall body frame gives a great feeling because it’s usually made from military-grade aluminum.
Dominator always received good ratings due to its excellent and friendly customer service, which is always there to help solve any problems that might appear.
Aprilia is one of those names that is forever engraved in the history of racing due to its many professional wins in professional motorcycle racing contests. With 294 Grand Prix races won, the company holds the record for the most wins out of any European manufacturer and that in itself is a testament to its greatness.
Since it became part of the Piaggio Group in 2004, Aprilia continued its history-making progress and innovation. This whole experience does not only translate into motorcycles though, as Aprilia scooters are widely considered to be some of the best in the world.
The company really stresses a balance between power, design, and sportiness to be combined with the technical performances. Aprilia’s vision in the scooter world is defined by two words, “uncompromising performance” and this is indeed what its designers seem to be striving toward.
They really make the brand part of the experience, since the scooters are reminiscent of the Aprilia superbike with their elegant styles and sharp aesthetics. For fans of racing, this is indeed a strong selling point and a competitive advantage that the company makes sure to use. There’s a hefty price associated with such a renowned brand but the top-notch quality is really worth it.
Vespa has long since passed the boundaries of a simple scooter company. Started in 1946 and first presented in a golf club in Rome, it has become a national and international brand that identifies itself with tradition, quality, and the inherent Italian elegance.
Vespa’s reach is so wide that nowadays it is one of the great icons of Italian fashion and style, with more than 16 million units produced throughout the world. Even though it’s now under the control of the Piaggio group, the company’s name still signifies a means of personal transportation that, in today’s crowded world, has become synonymous with freedom.
Vespa’s style is hard to miss even in a competitive market such as this one. Its scooters have sleek, refined lines along with eclectic colors and unique choice in style such as an original position of the parking light. The Piaggio partnership brought safety measures to a new high, combining the standard ABS brake system with the exclusive ASR traction control.
Nowadays, Vespa has used its image to go far beyond the production of scooters while also offering clothing items, gadgets, and accessories, thus truly evolving the brand into more of a lifestyle and less of a company.
